I don't actually do the online dating thing myself, but a friend of mine met her husband on fitness singles (, I guess). Obviously it worked for her!

I met my current bf on OkCupid. The funny thing is that they have all these matching algorithms and stuff, and we don't come up as even remotely matching! Yet when we started corresponding and then talking, we were perfect for each other.

The one thing about OkCupid is that all the good people seem to live Somewhere Else, no matter where you are. It's weird. My bf and I live 3 hrs drive apart.

A friend met her soon to be husband on I gave it a try a few years ago and met my ex-bf there. I think that site could be useful...the relationship didn't work out for reasons that had nothing to do with meeting online.

I met my husband indirectly from using, it’s the only site I’ve ever used. I was curious about the free personal profile. And its true you will probably not meet someone in your own city but you never know. Be prepared to spend a couple hours filling out the questions and answer them as honestly as you can. I was amazed, I agreed with about 95% of what they said. It may not be for everyone but It was a great experience for me and while on it I was directed to 2 great books, 1) The DNA of relationships by Gary Smalley and 2) The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren, they also have both of them on cd’s

I would caution you though, that no matter what site you choose to always pay attention to red flags in conversation and not to give out any personal information till you’re comfortable. Good Luck

I use too! I have to admit I feel desperate resorting to an online dating site but its completely free so why not. I am talking to a guy right now but we haven't met yet. I would recommend it though. Even if you don't meet anyone, its fun to look!

The beauty of an on line dating site is that you can be completely, even brutally honest about what you want in a partner. You don't have to go to the clubs and meet men or women who are just out for a good time. But the key is to be honest about yourself and what your looking for.

I agree with the 1:39am poster, don’t sell yourself short because if you truly want to find a possible life partner then honesty is usually a good foundation.

One nice thing about Eharmony is they send you possible matches based on your personal profiles and how compatible they feel you would be together. Unlike some sites where you just scroll down the pictures and hope they might be compatible. Another nice thing is that all communication takes place through their secure website until you choose to take it outside. For me it was worth the money. I met some really great people and now have been married for over a year and loving it. Good Luck

I met my husband n yahoopersonals. betreew workinr 4 12 hr shifts a week plus on-call time (i'm a nurse), gym time, and personal responsibilities I never had time to go out and meet people. We didn't come up on either of our search criteria but we lived in a small town so when i was looking to see if i knew anyone on there in my area i found him. We're very happy and are awating our second son who's due in Feb.
happy hunting!

I met my husband on IRC...not really through a dating service, just a chat room.

I knew people who got married off I also think that you would get better quality people if you pay for the service. If you have to pay, you're more inclined to be honest, and really truly looking for something.

Next month I'm attending a wedding of a couple who met on I know quite a few people who've tried it and been happy. I think it's a great way to practice your dating skills and to know what you're really looking for in a partner.

If you're looking to meet people and make friends, I really suggest, which is a free social get-together group. It's not billed as a singles group but, you know, boys+girls+alcohol=hooking up. I met my current boyfriend through that group and two couples who met in our group are now engaged.

Give it a shot. There's a chapter in just about every major city.

I met my soon to be husband online too. To the person who said they feel desperate for using online personal as a method of dating: don't feel bad, I think most people who date online feel the same way although we really shouldn't. There are SO MANY people who have found happiness through online dating and the momentum just keeps getting stronger and stronger to the point that I think it may even be socially accpeted one day...he he he!! :D

I think the key is just to be very careful, not too trusting and not expect to find the person of your dreams right off the bat. Online dating can make a person very delusional very fast. Logic and common sense is the key. Good luck!

I met my husband on over 2 years ago. He is the sweetest, most caring man that I've ever met.

I've had quite a bit of luck with, but I'm also trying salon personals. When I filled out the Eharmony profile they told me they couldn't help me ...I even tried to go back and change some of my answers but it wouldn't let me...haha

Married the man I met online.

I met my husband just by chatting on We talked for quite a long time, just about life and work and I was in college at the time. I know the online thing does seem scary, but it's not bad as long as you're cautious. When Craig and I agreed to finally meet, it was in a public place, and we drove our own cars. That is the main thing! If the guy doesn't want to meet in a public location he is probably either a psycho, or has a really bad social phobia. Just make sure it's a safe location and that friends and family know where you are going to be.
All worked out for me with yahoo. Craig and I were together a little over a year before we moved in together, and we got married last April on our 3 year anniversary.
Hope all works well with you and good luck!

I have to agree with all the comments made on these various posts. I too met my soon to be husband online and he's the most incredible person I've ever met. I couldn't have even dreamt of anyone better for me. Because I'm a big bodied woman I don't know if I would have had the opportunity to meet such a great man seeing as we live in a society where walls go up or come down based on first physical impressions. Meeting someone online and being able to bypass the initial physical attractiveness factor llowed our relationship to blossom based on that "click" that one wants to find when looking for a potential partner. Don't get me wrong, if my fiancee hadn't thought I was attractive, he wouldn't have continued our relationship. My point is, that it gives the other person the opportunity to get to know you without the other BS getting in the way.

As for the poster who said that he/she felt desperate having to resort to online dating, I totally understand. Despite the fact that online dating has been a huge social phenomenon for a good 10 years or more and that sooo many people have gotten married and had families through this medium, it is still looked down upon. I have made it a point to tell people where I met my fiancee when asked. And then I make a point of telling them how happy I am because I really am...which is more than I can say for most people who lift their brow when I tell them "I MET HIM ON THE NET!!"...with a killer smile on my face of course ;)

Good luck and be careful because for every one great guy you will find online, there are many, MANY sleazy ones. Best of luck!!
